A Magical Love Story: Being a Photographer at Brittany and Mason’s Harry Potter-Inspired Wedding at Catlett Farm in Fayetteville North Carolina
We love serving couples all over the Carolinas and when Brittany and Mason asked us to come to Fayetteville to be their wedding photographer, we couldn’t say no! They celebrated their love with a wedding that was nothing short of magical. Set against the enchanting backdrop of the Catlett Farm, their special day was an enchanting blend of Harry Potter wizardry and timeless romance.
Choosing Catlett Farm: A Perfect Blend of Beauty and Affordability
“We chose Catlett Farm because of it being such a gorgeous and affordable venue. The open fields surrounded by old, large trees were the perfect place to have our outdoor ceremony. The staff are also quite friendly and quick to respond. The location is also very close to us, as well as our family.”
Catlett Farm, nestled in the heart of Fayetteville, provided the couple with the perfect canvas to paint their love story. With its sprawling open fields and ancient trees, the venue exuded an aura of timeless charm. It wasn’t just the aesthetics that won them over, but also the affordability, friendly staff, and convenient location that made their choice crystal clear.
A Color Palette Enriched by Hogwarts Houses and the Spirit of Fall
The couple’s choice of colors, a rich and vibrant palette, was inspired by their love for the Wizarding World. Mason’s affiliation with Ravenclaw was reflected in the deep navy hue, while Brittany’s ties to Hufflepuff shone through in the sunny yellow accents. But the magic didn’t stop there. They incorporated shades of green and red to pay homage to Slytherin and Gryffindor, and a touch of orange to embrace the vibrant colors of autumn, one of their favorite seasons.
The result was a harmonious blend of colors that not only represented their individuality but also told the story of their love and their shared passion for Harry Potter. It was an enchanting way to bring the magic of Hogwarts into their special day.
No Harry Potter-inspired wedding would be complete without elements of wizardry. The couple’s creativity and passion for the wizarding world were evident throughout the wedding. They incorporated elements such as flying keys for favors and themed table names.
Brittany’s Magical Gown: A Galina Signature from David’s Bridal
Brittany’s journey to find her dream dress was as magical as the wedding itself. She initially fell in love with a “vintage” wedding dress that seemed to embody her “old soul.” However, her intuition led her back to David’s Bridal two weeks later, where she stumbled upon the gown that would steal her heart.
“The final dress was not my first pick. I had originally chosen a beautiful ‘vintage’ wedding dress that fit my ‘old soul,’ but something told me to go home and sleep on it. Well, I went back two weeks later and found THE dress. Once I put the dress on and looked in the mirror I instantly felt like Snow White; I had to have that dress (the other one just couldn’t compare anymore). I loved how the dress had subtle glitter on it, and how the sleeves rested slightly off my shoulders. I’m also a sucker for a nice floral print. The only thing that was missing was a flower crown to tie everything together.”
Brittany’s Galina Signature gown was a vision of elegance, enchantment, and timelessness. With subtle glimmers of glitter, it added a touch of magic to her bridal ensemble. The off-shoulder sleeves evoked a sense of timeless romance, and the delicate floral print brought a touch of whimsy to the ensemble.
The Finer Details: Bridal Accessories and Bouquet
To complete her look, Brittany added a beautiful flower crown, the missing piece that tied everything together. This accessory not only embraced her love for all things floral but also accentuated her role as the enchanting Snow White of her very own fairy tale.
Her bouquet, a stunning arrangement of autumn-inspired blooms, echoed the warm and inviting colors of the season. Deep reds, oranges, and vibrant yellows came together to create a magical bouquet that perfectly complemented the wedding’s color scheme.
